New documents released indicate the child was exposed to gangs, drugs and guns during his short life.
In almost 100 pages of confidential case files, multiple instances indicate a system that failed Belliveau.
The problems started just weeks after Belliveau's birth.
According to documents, Jordan was taken from his parents in November 2016 and placed in foster care based on a report that read:
"The home is filthy, disgusting ..."
"The home was shot up 3 times in the past."
"There is concern that Jordan Jr. is exposed to firearms and drugs."
And that young adults visiting the home were "... gang members and felons with firearms."
During an unsupervised visit with his mother on June 18, 2017, a confidential document said Charisse Stinson was holding then 1-year-old Jordan, when she "walked in to the middle of a fight" at a Burger King restaurant.
Jordan was injured in the fight.
In the same report, investigators note a dirty home and drug sales and that Jordan's parents were both known to be dangerous people.
During the next year, law enforcement records showed a history of domestic abuse between Jordan's parents. Some instances showed Stinson being the aggressor. Other times, Jordan's father was accused of battery on Stinson.
The instances have left questions about how Jordan could be allowed to go back to his parents — especially considering that Jordan's foster parents were willing to adopt him.
On Wednesday, Sam and Juliet Warren made a public statement, sharing memories of Jordan.
From January 2017 until May 31, 2018 they cared for Jordan. While in their home, he learned to walk and talk.
They wanted Jordan to stay in their family, but a court order forced them to give him back to his mother.
"We hope that Jordan’s loss will lead to the change that is needed to protect other endangered children in the system," said Sam Warren. "Jordan was failed by the system. He was failed by many people."
LARGO, Fla. — The mother of the 2-year-old Largo boy that had been the subject of an Ambert Alert for several days has been arrested and charged in the boy's death.
Charisse Stinson, 21, faces aggravated child abuse and first degree murder charges in connection with Jordan Belliveau's death.
A judge Wednesday afternoon set no bond for the murder charge and $500 on the child abuse charge.
Meanwhile, the child's foster parents, who had custody of Jordan from January 2017 to May 2018, said the boy was "failed by the system."
"He flourished and grew in a community that loved him deeply," Sam Warren said. "Jordan was failed by the system."During a news conference Wednesday morning, Largo Police Lt. Randall Chaney confirmed the charges and added multiple details of the case.
Chaney said Stinson acted alone in the boy's death and there was no one else involved. He added that police are searching for a person that may have come in contact with Stinson last Saturday evening at Largo Central Park.
Police added Stinson showed little emotion during her confession.
Largo Police converged on a wooded area near Lake Avenue and McMullen Booth Road late Tuesday afternoon. Shortly after, they made a short announcement confirming they had found the boy's body.
In an exclusive interview with Spectrum News conducted earlier Tuesday, Stinson, who did not want to be on camera, maintained her story that Jordan was abducted.
"There's a lot of concern because my son, we have DCF involved, but it is not towards me being a horrible parent or anything like that," Stinson said. "And I just really want people to know that I am a good mom. I am a good mother. I am a damn good mom."
Jordan was last seen in the area of Lake Avenue and East Bay Drive in Largo on Saturday.
According to police, Stinson told them she and her son were walking from their home Saturday evening when she accepted a ride from a stranger. She claimed that the man, named Antwan, attacked her and beat her unconscious. When she woke up in Largo Central Park, Jordan was gone, she said.
The story though was all a lie according to police, who added that Stinson's wounds were self-inflicted.
According to a police report, Stinson became upset with Jordan and struck the child across the face with the back of her hand. Police say the back of his head then hit a wall causing severe injuries.
He suffered seizures throughout the night, until he eventually died, authorities said. Police said Stinson then took the body to the wooded area and left the boy there.
Authorities said Jordan spent the majority of his life in foster care. He was taken away from Stinson at 3 months old, but she regained custody in May.
Police reports dating back to July of this year show a history of domestic violence between Jordan 's parents.
Also, Stinson is pregnant and due to give birth in December. It is not known who the father is.
An investigation is ongoing but police did say that it remains unknown if this weekend's discovery of bloody items at Stinson's apartment is related to the child's death.
